Top Irish Surfers descend on Bundoran this weekend
Update: Friday 30th September from Irish Surfing:
We are going to run a few rounds of the Men’s and maybe the first Round of the Women’s on Saturday starting at 10am at the Peak. About 4/5 hours surfing and the rest of the event on Sunday, starting at 10ish with 5/6 hours surfing.
The cream of Ireland’s surfers will descend on Bundoran for the annual Irish surf nationals championship which will take place at the Peak on Saturday and Sunday.
Rory Tuohy, Westport and Una Britton, Rossnowlagh were crowned Irish Men’s and Irish Women’s Surfing Champions when the event was last held in September 2019. The event was cancelled, and no titles were awarded in 2020 and 2021 due to the CovId 19 Pandemic.
Surfers from all over Ireland are expected to attend the Championships to compete for titles in Surf Women & Men, Longboard Women & Men, Masters +35 Women & Men, Masters +50 Women & Men, SUP, Bodyboard and Kneeboard.
Among the competitors will be Irish Team members Gearoid McDaid, Iarom Madden, Tom Breen, Maia Monaghan, Una Britton and Holly Widger, all returning this week from the World Surfing Games at Huntington Beach, California.
Since the Irish National Surfing Championships was last held, a new generation of young competitive surfers have emerged. We are looking forward to seeing them challenge for titles.
Bundoran Tourism Officer Shane Smyth welcomed the return of the event saying ‘it’s really great to see the top Irish surfers in the country return to Ireland’s Surf Capital for this prestigious competition this weekend. We wish the competitors and organisers the best of luck with the event.’
